And so it begins...

Hey people of the world my name is Jason Evans and I'm a soon to be second year Animation student studying at the Atrium in Cardiff.

I'm not going to post my life story just the need to know stuff, the reason I haven't created a blog till now was mostly because I didn't think I've have much to post about but recently I've felt I've got enough stuff to talk about (well we'll soon see)... and I was told for my second year I've got make one anyway so my hands are tied also :P

Okay with all that out of the way I'm going to start off by showing my end of the first year project. the first video link is walk, lip sink and trait. The lip sink is a first attempt and is not the final one I handed in but I didn't think there was much point in re-uploading it unless I really had to.

And this is the final performance

So that's pretty much it for my first year final project (and I don't want to go back and show you videos of all my previous projects).

Lacking back on my first year I would have to say it went really quick, it felt like only a week ago I was doing my bouncing ball animations. The course has been a lot of fun and stressful at some parts when you can't get certain animations to work (but that's to be expected out of any university course).
I would of liked to touched more into stop motion before I had to make final choice of which path to choose 2D or stop motion but if that's my only complaint it's a minor one.
From what I experienced so far out this course I would defiantly recommend it to someone who has a passion or talent for animation and wants to seek a career in it. That's pretty much all I got to say about the course thus far (and I don't really want to go in vast detail about every single project where have been given).

Anyway my class is now currently helping putting up the glammies 2013 award show and I'll let you know how that goes in a future post as well talk about my hobbies and interests.
